No BCS surprises: No. 1 Notre Dame will get SEC champ

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The job of the BCS standings is effectively over. The only question that remains -- who will play No. 1 Notre Dame in the national championship game on Jan. 7 in South Florida -- will be decided on the field.

The latest edition of the standings, released Sunday night, offered no surprises. Notre Dame is set at No. 1, while Alabama and Georgia remained at Nos. 2 and 3. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs face each other on Saturday in the SEC championship game in Atlanta, with the winner essentially -- but not officially -- assured of meeting the Irish at Sun Life Stadium for the national title. There was an outside chance that Florida could have slipped ahead of Georgia, but the Gators were 0.0029 points behind the Bulldogs.
